YUL Annual Statistics

Once a year, all libraries and units are asked to submit annual reports to the University Librarian. These reports have a narrative portion and a statistical portion. Begining with fiscal year 2001, the staff data form to report Annual Statistics is available online. For narrative reports, contact Library Administrative Services at 432-1818.

Reference Sampling Program

One part of the statistical reporting that has been carefully examined in the last few years is the measurement of reference statistics. These figures are sampled twice a month and extrapolated for the year.
